Which is just fine if you don't call it "impulse." Because the word "impulse" is a real, technical term with a real, established meaning.
If someone really wanted to use a magic non-Newtonian drive, they could retcon impulse to an acronym, like how Phaser was meant to be a portmanteau of "phased" and "laser" and got retconned to PHASed Energy Rectification.
I promise you I will listen to what has been said here, even though I wasn't here.
